Subject: "In der Hölle ist der Teufel los". A nice German title, for a change.
"Hellzapoppin,"

I've seen this film in the early thirties, and the movie theatre "roared with laughter", as the saying goes.
Thanks for the reference to youtube.r

Subject: Too scripted for O&J zaniness
Olsen and Johnson performed better when unencumbered by a script. See them at their best in "Hellzapoppin," viewable/downloadable in six parts on YouTube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcB3_jCXBKg ).

Subject: Done over excess
This film is not really good. It is its moments, but the way this odd high-pitched laughter is just again and again creeps me out. Maybe it is supposed to be funny or the like, but it just comes over as being rather stupid.

Comedy? Well ... at some rare points, but from a broader perspective everything comes over as being rather dull and boring.
